Penn State Basketball Knocks Off Maryland and Twitter Explodes
Penn State Basketball just might have punched its ticket to the NCAA Tournament, after a heroic buzzer-beating win over Maryland on Sunday afternoon.
For the second game in a row, it was Camren Wynter who delivered the Nittany Lions a victory as time expired, this time 65-64 over the visiting Terrapins inside the Bryce Jordan Center.
